  • TDG s’implante en Belgique
    Le groupe britannique TDG, qui n’était pas encore présent en Belgique, a officiellement créé TDG Belgium il y a quelques jours. Cela s’est fait après l’obtention d’un contrat logistique pour le groupe papetier britannique Arjo-Wiggins. Un centre de distribution a été créé à cet effet à Nivelles, au sud de Bruxelles, pour l’approvisionnement des marchés français et, dans une moindre mesure, belge. TDG espère que le contrat sera élargi et que cette activité pourra être étendue à d’autres pays.

Dans quelle mesure PSA Singapour ne risque-t-il pas d’être confronté à des situations similaires, d’autres armements ayant également l’intention d’opter pour un hub dans cette partie du sud-est asiatique pour y concentrer des trafics? PSA Singapour de va-t-il pas devoir compter avec une concurrence de plus en plus vive de la part de ports voisins?
